    Default Cannot see any text in Windows 8

    Hi all

    I'm having trouble with text on Windows 8 - there is no text! I can't see the URL's, folder names etc literally nothing hence I can't even try to find the issue in Control Panel.

    Any ideas what is causing it?

    P.S. When I start the PC an error icon comes up but, surprise I can't see what is says ...

    Some suggestions:

    Log in to another user profile and check. Can you see text now? If so maybe there is some corruption in your User Profile.

    Boot in Clean Boot. Does the problem disappear? If so some startup, service or program is interfering. Try to identify the offender and disable it.

    Run System File Checker & DISM.

    Run your antivirus.

    Restore default fonts and see if it helps.

    ....have you checked for viruses? - AdwCleaner (https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewd.../1-adwcleaner/) is a good and fast tool.
